The USA List

USA List

I like to make lists. Lists make me feel organized. Who doesn’t like lists? They keep me focused and help bring order to my chaotic life. Sometimes my lists are as simple as getting my daily tasks in order and other times, my list is never ending and challenged to complete. Do you know what I love most about making lists? Getting to cross off or place a check when I completed the task.

I want to share my travel Lists with you.  These are the points that I personally want to see that will fully encompass the culture, landscapes, and diversity of each Country. Since I’m a slow traveler, I like to take my time to understand each country I visit and then share those experiences with you so that your trip can reach its full potential.

This is my United States of America List.  As always, I break things up by region as I find that this is the easiest way to tackle when planning to visit each destination.

  1. This is such a difficult list to create! When people say they want to visit the US, I think it is so hard to give suggestions unless I know the kind of experience that they want. As for me, I would love to just do a year-long roadtrip visiting all the NP units. 😀

    1. It really is because the USA is so big! It took me a while to make this list and I know so much more can be added! glad you enjoyed it 🙂

  2. I, like you am a list lover! Creating a list about where to visit in the USA is so hard because behind every state is something special and magical! I am a huge fan of New England!

  3. I too and am a perpetual list-maker so this gets me excited to plan! Will definitely be adding a few to my list too, especially the last light in Yosemite National Park that sounds incredible!

  4. This is such a great list! I’ve only been to the West, but I managed to tick off Grand Canyon which was unbelievable! Definitely need to go back to the States and get more off your list crossed!

  5. Your list I think encompasses a good taste of the wide variety of the US! I do have to say though if you are getting a rainbow bagel make sure to get the French Toast one too, I have been going to the Bagel store long before the rainbow one and the French Toast Bagel is pretty epic!

  6. Great list! And as an American, I’m so glad to see you have more on here than New York, San Francisco and Vegas — there’s so much more to this beautiful country than the big cities. I’m working on my list too and it’s way more weighted to the southeast and southwest, but this gave me some ideas I hadn’t thought of.

    1. Awesome! That’s what my blog tries to shows off. new places that usually don’t get shown off yet are amazing destinations to visit! Glad you enjoyed it!

  7. I’m happy to see a little Oregon on that list – I may be biased, but I love that state! Crabbing on the Oregon Coast is the best and now I want Dungeness Crabs. I would only add a little more Southern Utah National Park exploring on there – I love Zion and Arches and Bryce Canyon – so beautiful and unique. Great list – best of luck ticking them all off! Cheers from Copenhagen

  8. hey I love your post! I’ve never been in USA yet but I will for sure in the future. would love to visit Colorado and the rest of the beautiful nature hidden all over the states. great post!
